*  The Forbes Family: Thyroglossal Cyst
Hi, I just read about your ordeal, my 14 year old son and I were looking at pictures of Thyroglossal duct cysts. We went to the Dr.s' today (5-04-09) for an ear ache that he had last Thursday. He said he felt better but I wouldn't be able to cancel the appointment. So took him in anyway, I have had an earache off and on for 3 weeks. Thought it could be the same thing. As he is getting examined I notice this huge lump on his throat, the Dr. checks and tells us it's a Thyroglossal duct cyst. My son and I were wondering how it could have gotten so big without us noticing it before now. Reading up on it explains it all. He has an appointment with an ENT for this Friday. We have already been told he will eventually need surgery. His is only about 2Centimeters now. I am so sorry that you had to go through all that you did. But your after pictures look good. Thanks for posting about your experience. PS he is hoping for a big scar. Leave it to a 14 year old boy. LOL!! ...

*  Histologic:Chapter 14 - Pathology Education Instructional Resource
The thyroid consists of two separate lateral lobes and a connecting part, the isthmus, lying over the superficial part of the trachea just below the larynx. Embryologically, the thyroid is derived as a diverticulum (thyroid diverticulum) from the midventral floor of the pharynx (entoderm). The thyroid develops very early and is present as a diverticulum in the human embryo before the end of the first month of gestation. The embryonic thyroid is at first attached to its point of origin by the thyroglossal duct located at the root of the tongue. The attachment of the duct to the tongue is marked by a pit, the foramen caecum, present in the root of the adult tongue. During development, the thyroglossal duct regresses, but remnants may persist as thyroid tissue within the tongue (lingual thyroid), as thyroglossal duct cysts, or as the pyramidal lobe of the thyroid. The thyroid has a very rich blood supply with autonomic nerves innervating the vessels to regulate ...
There are various causes of possible upper airway obstruction in infants. Particularly, large cysts on the base of tongue may cause severe airway obstruction by a mass effect on the hypo pharynx and by displacing the epiglottis of these basal lingual cysts, thyroglossal duct cyst is rare but occasionally its remnants can be found at the base of the tongue. We report successful management of paediatric airway in a two month old infant with a thyroglossal duct cyst scheduled for cyst excision. ...

*  The Adult Neck Mass - American Family Physician
Family physicians frequently encounter neck masses in adult patients. A careful medical history should be obtained, and a thorough physical examination should be performed. The patient's age and the location, size, and duration of the mass are important pieces of information. Inflammatory and infectious causes of neck masses, such as cervical adenitis and cat-scratch disease, are common in young adults. Congenital masses, such as branchial anomalies and thyroglossal duct cysts, must be considered in the differential diagnosis. Neoplasms (benign and malignant) are more likely to be present in older adults. Fine-needle aspiration and biopsy and contrast-enhanced computed tomographic scanning are the best techniques for evaluating these masses. An otolaryngology consultation for endoscopy and possible excisional biopsy should be obtained when a neck mass persists beyond four to six weeks after a single course of a broad-spectrum antibiotic.

Epidermoid cysts are rare lesions in the head and neck and are most often located in the submental region (8). They are a form of Keratin cysts and need to be differentiated from other similar lesions such as Dermoid cysts, Teratoid cysts, Thyroglossal cysts and Plunging Ranula's to decide the surgical approach during Excision.(1)(7) (9)[Table 1 ] They most commonly present with a midline, painless, slow growing, suprahyoid swelling in the neck enlarging over years due to accumulation of cutaneous products (5) (1). Typically, the mass is soft, mobile and unattached to overlying skin (1). They are described as pearly tumors because of the shiny, smooth and waxy character of their dry keratin (1). The size of the cyst can range from few mm to 12 cms(5) Most dermoid or epidermoid cysts of the floor of the oral cavity are derived from epithelial debris or rests, enclaved during midline closure of the bilateral first and second branchial arches, between 3rd and 5th weeks of gestation.

A number of embryologic or developmental abnormalities of the thyroid have been described and are related to the absence or mutations of thyroid differentiation factors, including thyroid transcription factors 1 and 2 (TTF-1 and TTF-2) and transcription factor Pax 8. Thyroglossal duct cysts are usually found in the midline, just inferior to the hyoid bone. A lingual thyroid results from maldescent of the median thyroid anlage and is often accompanied by agenesis of other thyroid tissue. Rests of thyroid tissue may be found anywhere in the central compartment of the neck, including the anterior mediastinum. Tongues of thyroid tissue are often seen to extend off the lower thyroid poles, particularly in large goiters. In contrast to the above, thyroid tissue in the lateral neck lymph nodes (lateral aberrant thyroid) almost always represents metastatic thyroid cancer and is not a developmental abnormality. ...

The only downside to our trip was that I got really sick the night we got there and my throat swelled up huge. We though I just had a swollen gland. However, it kept getting bigger and bigger and I looked ridiculous like a frog so we went to the ER Monday night when we got back. They don't really believe in urgent care centers in Maryland so that's really your only option. So I went there and it took forever of course. They gave me an antibiotic and some pain medication because it was pushing on my throat. They weren't totally sure what was wrong though so they sent me to a specialist. It turns out if had a thyroglossal duct cyst! And it's a congenital defect! Who knew I was defective! Anyhow if it happens again I will have to have surgery to have the parts of my thyroid tissue removed. I'm really hoping it doesn't happen again because they will have to cut open my throat and remove part of a bone and it leaves a pretty bad scar ...

We studied six groups of mice that were 2-4 days old and weighed 1.5-3.5 g (average 2.3 ± 0.4 g). Four groups of pups (n = 8-10/group) underwent a sterile tracheostomy after intramuscular anesthesia with ketamine (∼75 μg/g body wt) and xylazine (∼15 μg/g body wt) in preparation for MV. Two groups of control pups (n = 8-10/group), which came from the same litters as those on MV, also received ketamine-xylazine anesthesia before undergoing a small, superficial neck incision in preparation for breathing either air or 40% O2 without MV. Pups that were randomly selected to receive MV had a midline neck incision done under a dissecting microscope followed by a tracheal slit and insertion of a custom-made polyvinyl catheter [intratracheal segment: inner diameter (ID), 0.28 mm; outer diameter (OD), 0.61 mm; length, 1-2 mm; Tygon, Akron, OH] that was securely sutured in the trachea.
